30-Day Song Challenge Day 14: Song That No One Would Expect You To Love

Thanks to Navy buddies, I was introduced to a lot of hair bands in the late 80’s and one has always stuck out: Cinderella especially their second album Long Cold Winter. The album kicks off with the excellent “Bad Seamstress Blues/Fallin’ Apart at the Seams” and then moves into “Gypsy Road” which always gets stuck in my head. There are several other good ones on this album including the power ballad “Don’t Know What You’ve Got (Till It’s Gone).” I basically blame Dean and Paul, who got me involved with the naval base’s “Ground Floor Videos,” for force feeding me Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Ratt, and Enuff Z’nuff during our time together in Keflavik.

“Gypsy Road”

  1. GAH! If this song was stuck in my head, I’d be forced to get a lobotomy! Never minded Def Lep or Aerosmith, but so many of the hair-bands of that era are like nails on a chalkboard to me. I’d rather go full-on metal than screeching pop-metal-light.
